Ha, I actually did it by hand. I typed in the mount commands in the terminal, went to the /system folder in Root Browser, found build.prop and opened it with RB Editor (or something like that?), then renamed Acer.Shell.Mode = ENABLED to DISABLED, rebooted and voilá, it worked!

Yeah, good to know. I don't really havr enough time now, but I installed rom toolbox and I have an in-built .prop editor... I'm gonna insert the mount lines in terminal emulator and set off the shell from prop.build editor

WTF!? Did eventually happen to someone the phone to enter in boot-loop after disabling acershell ? Not even bootloop, it just freezes... Any idea how can I enable acer.shell again ? Maybe from TWRP ?

Well, that's exceptional. You were using the stock Acer firmware...?

Yeah. If I wasn't there would've not been that shell available ...

 

Don't stress yourself anymore. I flashed a cleaner from Acerblogspot and then I used the terminal emulator and prop.editor inbuilt in rom toolbox. It worked.

It's a great site. You may want to translate it, but some parts (the more important ones) are also in English.

The truth is there are 'no' pending updates... This phone is going to die with 4.1.2 on it
